“Cardwell Cottage Reborn”


Framed Original Watercolour, available unframed (‘Contact Me’), on acid free Arches paper, image size approx. 72 x 52 cms., comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.



On driving to Townsville I was delighted to see that the Cardwell Historical Society had scavenged the remnants of timber and iron sheeting of the old cottage blown all over the paddocks by Cyclone Yasi, and had authentically re-built it. It now stands in its original state with just a few new boards here and there. I purposely chose to paint in these colours with the aim of showing a new dawn for the previously condemned cottage. To see how it looked previously check out my ‘Lithographs’ section on my website…..that image was painted some years before its further deterioration prior to the cyclone.
